New Onra EP On Fool’s Gold + North American Tour

Posted on May 23rd, 2012 in Announcements > Streams by Mr Goldbar

As you may have seen on Pitchfork today, we’re proud to announce that Onra’s new Deep In The Night EP drops June 12th on Fool’s Gold – right in the middle of the producer’s US tour, which kicks off tomorrow at Beauty Bar in Chicago. See dates and more after the jump, and listen to “L.O.V.E.” off the EP right now.

Globetrotting producer Onra has staked his claim as one of the most exciting beat-makers of the past few years, thanks to releases like his Chinoseries collections (made from scratch with samples found while traveling Asia) and the acclaimed Long Distance LP. All the while, his electrifying live MPC performances around the world – everywhere from the Red Bull Music Academy in Barcelona and Giles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival, to LA’s down-and-dirty bass sanctuary the Low End Theory – add new dimensions to the cosmic grooves Onra puts on tape.

With his first release for Fool’s Gold, the Deep In The Night EP, Onra continues to chart new musical territory. The EP’s five tracks meld the snap of vintage jheri curl R&B with squggling disco synths and deeply funky, late-night vibes. From the new jack swinging “After Hours” (featuring T3 of Slum Village) to the moody, screwed loops of closer “Hold Tight,” Deep In The Night‘s cut-and-paste danceability proves a must-listen for any occasion. After all, it’s always after hours somewhere…
